Subject: 3 Things They Forgot To Tell Ya
1. No square dancing (see "Mollies Menarche").
2. Do not wear white pants.
3. Lay off chips and pretzels for 4 days before
you "come sick" (or you'll bloat).

Subject: Nice film
Now here's a nice little educational film. The kids are great.

Check out those mattress sized sanitary napkins. Thank God for ultralites and wings!

Subject: FP... grow up
FP has problems with the body's natural functions apparently, or is some religious zealot that finds the body a nasty, perverted thing.

My wife got a kick out of this, as she was shown this film long ago in school as a young girl.

Subject: NOT shocking or pornographic
Pay no attention to FP's review. Either he hasn't watched the film, or he's just being a troublemaker. It seems he's writing about what he WISHED this was..
Actually, it's a sweet little look at growing up for girls, with a nice female empowerment message at the end. Also some groovy graphics and a breezy soundtrack. As Spuzz put it, "a nice period piece"...

Subject: A nice period piece lmao
After seeing Molly grows up and countless other feminine shorts, (ever see the one made for Down syndrom kids? my god!) I went into Naturally a girl with some reservations. But I was actually quite surprised at how breezy and free flowing (ewwww, excuse the pun) the whole production is. Using diagrams and examples, we learn about the reproductive cycle of a woman, and as well, actual interviews with several teenaged girls, one of which looks very familiar. (the right one of the pair), I'm not sure why. A Surprise.

A biological coming-of-age film of alarming frankness. If bald, bleeding, barely-pubescent female genitalia is your thing, download this file...
